The Museum Of The Broads is housed in Stalham and is an interesting hour or so diversion. It depicts life on the Broads right back to Victorian times, with many exhibits both marine and from on land. A definite attraction is the opportunity to sail aboard a Victorian steam launch. More information HERE. A short drive away is Horsey Gap, which is a well known area for spotting basking seals. The lighthouse at Happisburgh is also a stand-out feature of this area. The bright lights of Great Yarmouth are a 30 minute drive away when it's a bucket and spade sort of day.
